Abita Brewing Co
PO Box 1510
Abita Springs LA 70420 
Phone: 985-893-3143 
Founded in 1986, the Abita Brewing Company is nestled in the piney woods 30 miles north of New Orleans. In its first year, the brewery produced 1,500 barrels of beer. We had no idea what we started. Customers loved our beer! By 1994, we outgrew the original site (now our 100 seat brew pub) and moved up the road to a larger facility to keep up with demand. We brew over 90,000 barrels of beer and 5,000 barrels of root beer in our state of the art brewing facility. Our lagers and ales are brewed in small batches, hand-crafted by a team of dedicated workers with only the highest ideals of quality. This pride, along with our brewing process, is what creates our great brews. We are privately owned and operated by local shareholders, many who have been with us since day one. Abita uses only the finest ingredients – British and North American malted barley, German and American yeast strains, Pacific Northwest hops and the pure artesian water of Abita Springs.

Heiner Brau Microbrewery
226 E Lockwood St
Covington, LA 70433
Phone: 985-373-1844
Owner and brewmaster, Henryk “Heiner” Orlik, is one of a select few German brew masters in the United States. In 1972, at the age of 16, Henryk began his brewing career in Germany. His education in brewing was thorough and laborious, as it took a little more than seven years to obtain his final degree from the Doemens School of Brewers and Malsters. His focus is on quality and he is committed to his craftsmanship. His dedication to the art of brewing is strictly according to the German Purity Law of 1516… also known as “Reinheitsgebot.” That means no adjuncts, no artificial carbonation and no other additives are used to enhance the brewing process. Just simple malted barley, hops, yeast, water and the true experience of a German brewmaster makes Heiner Brau beers tasty and refreshing.
New Orleans Lager and Ale Brewing
3001 Tchoupitoulas Street
New Orleans, LA 70115
Phone: 504-613-7727
NOLA Brewing is the concept and dream of entrepreneur Kirk Coco. Kirk is a native New Orleanian who earned his BA and Juris Doctorate from Louisiana State University, his MBA from the University of New Orleans and served 11 years as a Surface Warfare Officer in the United States Navy. After watching the effects of Katrina while on deployment in the Arabian Gulf, he decided to come home to help rebuild and develop commerce in post-Katrina New Orleans.

While enjoying great tasting beer of fellow New Orleanian and home brewer Byron Towles, the question arose, “Why doesn’t New Orleans have several great local micro-breweries like Portland or Seattle to offer a variety of beer to a city full of brewing history?” Once the cradle of brewing in the Deep South, New Orleans boasted world famous beers such as Falstaff, Regal, Union, Dixie, Jax, New Orleans Brewing and XXXX (Four X). The result of this conversation was NOLA Brewing – bringing you great New Orleans beer.
Parish Brewing Company
613 E 2nd St. Ste B
Broussard, LA 70518
Phone: 337-315-3351

Parish Brewing Co. is a nanobrewery (yes, nano! smaller than micro!) in Lafayette, Louisiana. Parish will be bringing Acadiana and the rest of Louisiana uncompromising, craft brewed beer (or biere in our native cajun french). Using only the finest ingredients, we'd never cut costs at the expense of flavor. Think of Parish as an upstart local brewery in cajun country doing battle against boring, tasteless swill.
